About the Author

London-born journalist and author Mat Snow is the award-winning former editor of the world-renowned music magazine Mojo. A Beatles nut since age four back in 1963, he has interviewed Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr as well as a galaxy of non-Beatles, including The Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, the Kinks and many more. He continues to live in London with a daughter named after a Kinks song and a dog named after Dolly Parton, another favorite interviewee.


"This visually enticing look at the solo careers of each of the four Beatles has the feel of a lovingly crafted fan scrapbook. Festooned with a caricature of its subject on the cover, each slim volume is packed with pull-out quotes and photographs. Journalist and author Snow's (former editor,Mojo magazine) genuine enjoyment of these musicians is evident from his wordplay, callbacks to previous songs, and snappy chapter and subheading titles ("A Real Everywhere Man," "Dark Hoarse"). However, he isn't blinded by his admiration, allowing himself to be critical of the artists' endeavors when necessary. In general, Snow is far more enthusiastic when providing analysis of the quartet's creative output than he is when discussing details of their personal lives. Because these are concise overviews rather than in-depth examinations, fans who want more comprehensive portraits would do better to seek out biographies of the individual Beatles (Philip Norman's John Lennon: The Life is an especially strong offering). VERDICT Although there's no shortage of material on the Fab Four, this charming and attractive title will appeal to pop culture and music fans, particularly those looking for an introduction to John, Paul, George, and Ringo post- Beatles." - Library Journal
